Product News to Kick off the New Week

Starting on January 4 (aka tomorrow), virtually all functions on BlackBerry OS 7.1 or earlier, plus OS 10 devices will be completely turned off. This isn’t just isolated to network issues — including Wi-Fi and BlackBerry apps — this also includes crucial functions like calls, texting, data and even 911 emergency services.

BlackBerry aside, we’re kicking things off with the revival of PF Flyers, Finisterre’s award-winning (and completely biodegradable) jacket and a wintry set of G-Shock watches. Welcome to 2022: This is Today in Gear.
